Fished today. Made it about 4 hours today.  Left by noon as did the other 10boats.  We caught a few and missed a few also caught an released a nice pike.  Saw a boat flagging us down and pulled him back to the landing.  Water temp dropped back to 36 degrees.

Not a fishing report but looking for any kind on info on fishing lake Erie. I am having a hard time find any info/location. Debating if I wanna take my own boat out or hire a guide. I will have room in my boat for 1 or 2 more people if anyone is intrested in coming along. Any info/input would be great. Please PM if you have any input  on this or if you are intrested in a fishing trip. I live in the Green bay area. Thanks and good luck to all.

Maybe tougher to find and catch. But it's not like they're not in there. What's the worst that could happen? You catch a dozen? Caught these closer to home! And the high water is what brought them closer to shore!

Cast upstream and jig downstream slowly.  They r facing upstream during this time so jigging  this way will  bounce the bait right in front of their noses. 

Good luck!

1/4 to 1/2 oz depending on current. Bright colors work best for me orange pink yellow gold.

Fishing has slowed on the Fox. every day as traffic increased the bite did drop off. A lot of very small fish( males present).  Dragging jigs slowly helped with either slight forward progress of the boat with a trolling motor or drifting with the current. 

Anchoring in the shallows produced fish as well as vertical jigging in deep water.  The fish seem to be scattered in the river at this point.  

Winter is here and we do have snow accumulation. When that snow melts I expect water flow to go way up and that current usually tends to concentrate the fish in the prespawn phase coming up.

The Fox is great but there are other areas on Green Bay that have a lot less boats and traffic and huge walleyes. I am looking forward to some amazing walleye fishing coming up in March in April.  Giant 30 inch fish are fun to catch!

I have some dates in March and April open.

Fished Tuesday and yesterday. Tuesday we boated over 60 fish, mostly pitching jigs in 10 to 7ft off channel edge. Also vertical jigging in deep channel edges produced. Swamp donkey fat heads did the trick! I switched over to plastics while my buddies stayed with fat heads and I had no success, switched to #6 rip and rap and caught a few fish on that but it was not like the live bait. Thursday it was very slow about a dozen fish with nothing standing out! A couple smallies and walleyes on rip and raps, few on jig and minnow and a couple on blade baits. Both deep and shallow were even. My quick opion on keeping fish! The legal limit is 3 right now so don't bash guys for keeping them! This isn't the first time the rivers been fish able before the 1 over 28 goes in effect! Yes it's being magnified because it's rare for it to be 60 for almost a week staight ! but this fishery is huge with great natural reproduction and it's not going to effect it at all, case in point,fare weather guys, 150 boats Tuesday when it was 60 and about 30 boats if that yesterday when it was 40. Guys just need to settle down and enjoy the spring fun that's just starting and don't stress out about other guys livewells
